Office of International Programs
The OIP collaborates with faculty across campus to create faculty-led travel/study programs each year. Faculty and departments can propose to obtain assistance from our office in organizing a program abroad by following these steps and submitting a proposal for approval. If your trip is a recurring trip that has been abroad within the last 12 months you are eligible to use the proposal renewal form. It goes through the same process as the original proposal.
